Spending throughout Government organizations can easily be cut if the hiring process would support ACTUAL qualified applicants for the job. Far too often the "good ol boy" network has taken over throughout government positions and the employee pool is stacked with underqualified individuals filling important positions. No longer are the qualifications determined by what you know or the experience you have, but more of WHO you know. Now a job that would normally require one person takes three or four due to the ineptitude of the employee. Overtime hours have increased, training costs have increased and the level of performance has consistently decreased. Federal employees are put at ease with a sense of job security that many do not deserve. Hold agencies accountable for the people they hire!
